Despite Focus on Convention Floor, Major Decisions at RNC Made by Wealthy Donors Behind Closed Doors


As the Republican National Convention opened on Tuesday in Tampa, thousands of journalists were there to cover the story. At the same time, secretive meetings were being held behind closed doors across the city that could determine who wins the election in November. According to the Huffington Post, at one such meeting on Tuesday, the Karl Rove-founded Crossroads groups, representatives of the billionaires Charles and David Koch, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce huddled at a local hotel to coordinate efforts to spend tens of millions more on television ads and voter turnout in their effort to defeat President Obama. We speak to investigative journalist Peter Stone, whose latest article for the Huffington Post is called "RNC 2012: GOP Shadow Groups Eclipsing Party in Tampa." [includes rush transcript]
Hurricane Isaac Makes Landfall in Louisiana, Threatening New Orleans with Heavy Flooding


Hurricane Isaac has made landfall in southern Louisiana as it heads toward New Orleans on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The Category 1 storm is producing winds of at least 80 miles per hour and is expected to bring heavy flooding. It marks the most serious test of New Orleans’ rebuilt levees. At least 200,000 people have lost power throughout the Gulf Coast area, and some 50,000 were slated to evacuate New Orleans. We go to New Orleans to speak with Washington Post reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia. [includes rush transcript]
Chaos on the Convention Floor as RNC Blocks Ron Paul Delegates, Alters Seating

Controversy erupted on the convention floor when a dispute broke out over whether to seat the delegates of presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. Part of Maine’s delegation stormed off the floor in protest of a decision to strip away half of Paul’s delegates. Supportive members of other delegations rose to their feet and hollered their objections, angered by new rules that they say they will make it harder for grassroots candidates to stand a chance in future elections. Democracy Now! producer Deena Guzder was on the scene and filed this report. [includes rush transcript]
In Ascent to GOP’s Top Ranks, "Money & Pandering" Leads Paul Ryan to Drop Opposition to Cuba Embargo


One issue vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan will likely avoid in his acceptance speech tonight is his changing stance on the U.S. embargo on Cuba. For years, Ryan was a vocal critic of the five-decade-old embargo, saying in 2002: "If we think engagement works well with China, well, it ought to work well with Cuba. ... The embargo doesn’t work. It is a failed policy." Ryan’s view at the time put him in stark contrast to the Republican leadership and especially influential Cuban-American Republican lawmakers from Miami, of whom he said: "I just don’t agree with them and never have." But as Ryan set his eyes on national office, his views on Cuba completely reversed. We discuss Ryan’s changing views on Cuba with Al Fox, president of the Alliance for Responsible Cuba Policy. Fox has made 83 legal visits to Cuba and has often brought U.S. politicians to visit the island. [includes rush transcript]
